It seems everywhere I look, the design world is embracing color…vibrant hues in wild combinations…I, on the other hand, can’t seem to shake my passion for gray…rich charcoals, feather weight pale blue grays, I’m drawn to them all…may you find beauty in these expressive interiors…

frette ~ casa mollino

Today’s post features six new designs from the Frette 2011-2012 fall/winter collection…photographed in the 18th century Italian apartment of famed architect Carlo Mollino, it is a brilliant study in juxtaposition…the fanciful colored bedding seems right at home with the ornate gilt moldings, Japanese inspired lighting and mid century furniture…what a wonderful fantasy…

sunday tradition ~ part five

Today’s post is a special Valentine’s Day Sunday tradition! I lovingly saved a Frette catalog from 2006 that features some of the most opulent bedrooms I’ve ever seen and I couldn’t be more excited to share them with you! The image above is my favorite ~ dark, dramatic, mysterious and sinfully romantic…the shimmer of silver leafed walls, the timeless romance of a Venetian glass chandelier, and layers of delicious Frette bedding in the most mouth watering shades of green…sigh…I hope you find these images as inspiring as I do…a taste of bedroom decadence for Valentine’s Day!

“Long established as a producer of finely-crafted fabrics, Frette’s reputation for Made-in-Italy linens remains unrivalled even today. For almost 150 years, this prestigious linens house has supplied the creme of society, from the Italian Royal family to innumerable aristocratic families across Europe and beyond. Even the Vatican has fallen under Frette’s spell, ordering customized cloths for the marble altars at St Peter’s in Rome.” ~ Frette
